At the end of the Fall Festival Parade, two people who had contributed to the Prince William Chapter American Red Cross where selected at a random drawing to toss pies into the face of our Mayor. The winners were the town's Vice Mayor, Ken Brunsvold, Delegate Paul Nichols. While Ken was there at the event, it was decided that the town's Administrator and Clerk, Claudia Cruise would throw the pie in his place. Below are pictures of this historic event.
When you click play on the flash video on the left, you can see our Mayor of Occoquan, Earnie Porta, being a good sport and taking not one, but two pies in the face to raise money for the Prince William Chapter American Red Cross' annual Heroes Campaign.
While our Mayor's efforts helped, they still need your support. You
can still contribute to the organization that needs
money, blood, and platelets.
You can access the Prince William Chapter of
the American Red Cross by clicking their logo on the
right to donate money or schedule a blood donation.

If you're in the mood for a movie, do what the webmaster of HistoricOccoquan.com does, donate platelets. The Red Cross will let you watch one of the movies they have available for selection while you are donating. You can click on the lower Red Cross logo to schedule a platelet donation.
